Hey puffer, I really regret that I didnt take photos. I only ended up losing about 4kgs but I built a lot of muscle and people said they could really tell in my arms and shoulders. I trained really hard but as I mentioned above, I went overboard on the free days.
For protein powder, I use Goliath's WPI 90 (choc hazelnut crunch flavour) and it tastes great! Probably the best one I've tasted and it shakes up well with water. Its a whey protein isolate and it says on the tub that its got only 1% lactose so I dont know if that will affect you. The good thing about it is that you can get it in single serve sachets to try all the flavours instead of having to buy a huge tub and end up not liking it. Once you decide on a flavour though, its probably best to buy a tub coz it works out cheaper. Per serve, there's hardly any fat (0.12g), or carbs (1.9g) and doesnt contain any added sugar (or aspartame). Its only 62kjs per serve and has 25.5g protein.
Here's the website if you want to check it out.
As for protein bars, EAS used to make these "Body For Life" bars which were delicious
so I used those sometimes. Unfortunately they dont make them anymore.
Now, I use the Horley's Carbless ones (Double Dutch Choc Fudge flavour) which are ten times better than any other one I've tried (and I've tried a lot!) They are only 180 cals each and 18.4g protein. They contain a protein blend (soy protein isolate, calcium caseinate and whey protein isolate). They use real chocolate for the outside which tastes great but I'm not sure if it would affect you. Check out this website for full list of ingredients.

Anyway, those are my favorites. You can go for any one you like but make sure they dont have too much sugar or other crap that you dont need.
Let us know how you go! Are you using a personal trainer or are you doing it yourself?
